Since Manny’s first Christmas, I’ve wanted to make homemade stockings. I never got around to it. Then a couple years passed, and it was Sister’s Girl’s first Christmas, and then it was time. I mostly wanted to make homemade stockings because I couldn’t find exactly what I wanted, even on awesome sites like Etsy. I loooooove fabric. I love it! And there are so many adorable Christmas prints I thought it would be fun to make fabric stockings. Plus, I sew, I don’t knit, despite my best efforts. I learned a couple years ago to knit but I can’t make it a regular thing for me for some reason. I think I like to sew more. I also LOVE Christmas! Like really love Christmas, like a 5 year old loves Christmas. That feeling has never gone away for me.
These stockings are special to me because they make me think of our first Christmas as a family of four. Do you have special stockings you use each year?
